Now that the Mount Sinai School District failed to get a supermajority of voters to approve the $55.4 million budget, the district has multiple ways to proceed:
- It can put the same budget up for a revote, which would again require a supermajority of voters to approve it.
- It can put a revised budget of up for a vote.
- It can go right to a contingency budget with a 0 percent tax levy increase, which would require about $2.4 million more in cuts.
Superintendent Anthony Bonasera has said to expect cuts to programs to come in the next proposted budget, so it does seem as though they will not put the same vote up for revote.
The second vote will take place on June 19. What do you support? Log in to Patch and vote in the poll or add a comment below.
